1. BackgroundNew home construction plays a significant role in housing economy, while simultaneously impacting other sectors such as timber, furniture and home appliances. New house sales is also an important indicator of country’s overall economic health and direction. In the last 50 years there has been few significant bumps and turning points in this sector that shaped the trajectory of the overall economy.  Here I review the historical patterns and make a short-term (5 years) projection of…See More

So, exactly how long retail bookstores are going to…See More

This tiny book isn't going to make someone a finance expert but I did find a few things useful for data scientists and business analysts whose background is not finance or economics. Data science is truly a multi-disciplinary area with people coming from many different background and areas of expertise, often with little to no exposure to finance and economics. So I am…See More

  5. Forecasting
  6. Predictive analytics

Here I am focusing on outlier…
